Inspired first by the flora and fauna of rural England, and later by the world's deserts, coastlines, mountains, and woodlands, Keith Wiley has distilled the essence of these wild landscapes into a single garden with breathtaking success. Much more than a book of new planting ideas, On the Wild Side challenges our whole understanding of what a garden is. Why strive for year-round color throughout the garden when small areas can seize the limelight at their seasonal peak? Change and evolution is at the heart of new naturalism — is your garden ready for it?

About the Author
After obtaining an honors degree in horticulture from London University, Keith Wiley spent twenty-five years as head gardener at The Garden House in Devon. There he evolved a gardening style based on modifying natural landscapes from around the globe. The garden he created there was described by national commentators as “one of the most exciting and innovative gardens in Britain today” and the best example of “leading-edge horticulture” in the UK. Keith is a regular contributor to horticultural and lifestyle magazines, and has appeared on many gardening television programs in the UK. Over the last ten years, Keith and his wife have created a new garden from a bare field at Wildside, where they run their own nursery. Keith is the author of two other gardening books and has lectured widely all over the world.
